GAME OF FEAR
The world of computer hacking is taken to dangerous and extreme levels in this exceptional action adventure. The greed of dirty cops and megalomaniacs comes to the fore as they take lives without compunction. The story moves quickly and captivates readers with every page. Strong ties are evident as the family joins together to present a united front.
A disillusioned Gabe Montgomery vows to become a better cop than his father. He lives his dream for a short time until he is knifed and kicked off the SWAT team. Now he works undercover, trying to expose corruption in the sheriff’s office. Deb Lansing, a crack helicopter pilot, is stunned when her younger sister, Ashley, goes missing. The note saying the girl genius is quitting school and leaving with her boyfriend is obviously fake. When other bright teens go missing, Deb joins forces with Gabe to unearth the truth. After some of Ashley’s friends are found murdered, they know they’re on the right track. An interactive video game, Point of Entry, seems to be the common denominator among the missing teens.
